    Looking for the best engine degreaser

    I've got a motor sitting on my engine stand and I want to make her look like new. I have tried simple green and it works...ok

    I am looking/wanting a stronger product that you have used. Any insight (with pixs) would be great.

    Thanx guys.

    Re: Looking for the best engine degreaser

    A while back I bought some degreaser at a local auto parts store & it was all right. I ordered some DP degreaser from AutoGeek and WOW! I'll post some pics tomorrow of my engine. Did my daughter's car (and she's out of town right now), sorry no before and after, but I was MORE than pleased with the results.

    A power washer goes a long way on a filthy block, good luck!

    Just be sure to use a product safe for aluminum. Once I used Castrol Super Clean on bare aluminum.. ooops! Good thing it was on something of mine.

    I try to use the pressure washer as much as possible, then use degreaser or Total Auto Wash and various brushes to get rid of the stubborn grease/grime.

    A good Engine degreaser, agitate well and then rinse with pressure cleaner.

    Since its all accessible why not get a mothers power ball and some metal polish. I have used the WG Metal Werks compound and it works well with power ball on aluminum(they were wheels tho).
